Smoked Brisket for my Female Grill Masters

Smoked brisket is tender, juicy beef, seasoned and smoked for hours, until it literally melts in your mouth. A meal worth waiting for!

I just watched a promo video for a local BBQ cook off and the one thing I noticed (other then the meat) is that the only people tending to the smokers and grills were big, sleeveless, baseball cap wearing men. Um… Did the ladies miss the memo on this one. I didn’t even know there was a BBQ cook off going on until the day of, but I am not a competitive grill master. I do like to get my eat on though.

But, I can’t be the only woman who is the master of the flame in her household. I often like to pretend I’m going round for round with the top chefs from across the country when that first blast of smoke rises up and coats my clothes and my taste buds start their happy dance.

As the day wears on and I know that a masterpiece smoked brisket is slowly working its magic, I can’t help but snicker and remind myself that I am the grill master, at least in this house.

Nice job! I'm BBQ obsessed this summer and it looks like you really nailed it with this brisket. What kind of smoker do you have? I would love to get one, but I live in the city and barely have room for my Weber.
